Artist Name

Svetlana Lileeva

Hometown: Moscow

Based in: Moscow

I was born and raised in Russia (Moscow). Since childhood I have been drawing and painting, graduated from art school. Years of travel around the world have shown me the infinite diversity of our planet and its diversity of nature and climate, architecture and culture. All these impressions formed the basis of my inspiration. However, my preferences for the subject - landscape and especially seascape - were finally formed after several years of living in Europe, Asia and Indonesia. I admire the views of the majestic and rugged Alps as I stand on the snowy summit. My heart skips a beat when I meet the dawn of a new day at the top of a volcano or plunge into the ocean and touch the fin of a stingray. And most of all I love to watch silent sunrises and delightful sunsets on the seashore. In each picture I strive to convey the primordial nature of the elements, the silence of endless mountain expanses or the whisper of the surf and the sonorous splash of a transparent wave. Freezing time, capturing a moment on paper is my inspiration and creative goal. I am a full-time artist and every day I follow my goal and paint.
